15 People Shot in Drive-by Shooting at Funeral for Another Drive-by Shooting Victim
Fifteen people were shot in a drive-by shooting in Chicago at a funeral for a victim of another drive-by shooting, Chicago Police said.
Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown that rival gang factions were repeating a cycle of violence and revenge.
“We can’t keep meeting out violence with violence,” Brown said. “An eye for an eye makes us both blind. It’s destroying our families and perpetuates this endless cycle of gunshot victims night after night.”
Two of the people shot at the funeral are men “known to police,” Chicago Police said. Both are in their 30s and are listed in serious condition, said CPD.
Of the injured, all of whom are adults, 14 were hospitalized. One person is in extremely critical condition and another is in critical condition, according to police. Police say the others who were injured in this shooting are expected to recover.
The oldest victim, a 65-year-old woman, was treated on scene and is in good condition, police said. There is a person of interest being questioned by police, CPD said.
The shooting is just the latest in a spate of gun violence in Chicago and in major cities across the United States in the past few months that coincide with the end of COVID-19-related lockdowns, mass protests against police violence and summertime when crime annually increases.
